I'm not sure which is worse, Samaritan's Purse being kicked out of NYC or Gotham's mayor warning Jews they'll be rounded up if they don't obey orders. The latter was De Blasio's response to a pre-approved funeral for a Jewish rabbi. https://www.realclearpolitics.com/2020/04/30/bill_de_blasio_isnt_an_anti-semite_buthe_is_an_idiot_509670.html
California's State Assembly very recently passed Resolution 99, which condemns any efforts at 'conversion therapy' for LGBT folk. The tone and thrust of the resolution targets religious leaders, accusing them/us of bigotry. In essence government is passing resolutions condemning faith communities for the morals we practice within our church/ward/synagogue/mosque walls. In a similar vein, one of our two major political parties declared by formal resolution that religious liberty has been used to promote bigotry and homophobia. I'm not so bothered when pundits, commentators, liberals and progressives talk this way. However, when government formalizing hatred of particular Christian views, and when political parties believe they will win by opposing First Amendment freedoms...well, I hope I'm right about the Rapture.
